Have you been wondering what the Paid Leaf is all about?
Then welcome to my review. We will be going through this program or product to find whether it is a scam or a legit way how to earn some money on the side.
I have reviewed more than 100 digital products so far and it is shame that about 90% of them are misleading and some of them are just scams.
Let’s find out in which category the Paid Leaf (PL) belongs to.
I always look at the website creation date to learn about the age of the product and if possible I check the amount of traffic that the website gets.
That gives me some kind of the first impression of the product.
Name: Paid Leaf
Price: Advertised Price 0$ to join
What Is PaidLeaf? – Is Paidleaf a Scam?
Paidleaf is a system that promises you to make $500 a day. You just log in, you get your special link which you can share on social media and you get paid for everyone who joins this system.
Sounds easy, right?
Well, let me tell you right here that this system does not work like that. There are many red flags that make me not trust this product at all.
But let’s start from the beginning.
Let’s check out how old this website (www.paidleaf.com) is.
According to the “whois” website we see that the Paidleaf was created on September 6th, 2019. It has more than 200,000 visits per month and the traffic since September still grows.
It seems that it gets more and more attraction. One can say the popularity of PL is increasing, but soon we are going to find out that there is no reason to be excited about Paid Leaf.
The thing is that right from the beginning you are being lied to.
After you enter the PL dashboard you have a pop-up window saying that you will be paid $2 for every person that clicks your link and another $10 when they join the PL.
That is a lot of money considering that there are more than 200,000 visitors per month. Let’s say only half of them would share the “Special Link” only once. That is $200,000 paid out every month!
Not mentioning the number of people who would join – that is another $10 per person to be paid out.
And wait, there is more.
Once you join the PL Dashboard you are promised to receive a $25 Sign up Bonus.
I believe you get it by now – The truth is that there is no money to be paid out.
What you see at their homepage is just bogus.
Once you enter the dashboard (which is for free) you see that you already have the $25 credit “available”.
This is precisely the same as the other product I reviewed the other day called Clout Bucks.
Let’s take a look at their About Page.
I really don’t know if I have to cry or laugh. It says that “Paidleaf was founded in 2015 to help regular social media users…”
Didn’t we just find out that this very website was created in September 2019?
Also, they claim, they paid more than $44 million to over 300K members.
Considering that they have been around for a couple of months (as for today is the end of November) only, and their traffic is about 200k per month, they seem to have a great conversion rate.
(I have seen a different review which was done at the beginning of October 2019 and there are the same number 300K members).
It is just not possible to have 300K subscribers in 1st month when the number of visitors is only 200K pre month.
The Good & the Bad
- Scam – Do NOT sign up (if you are curious and want to join the PL make sure you don’t reveal your email, password, and name; instead create a new email account with a different password just for this purpose)
- Same scam as Clout Bucks
- Owners – Not Known
Who is it For?
There is a straight answer to this question – Nobody!
I mean who wants to join a scam system with fake earning claims?
What blows my mind is the number of visitors this website gets. It is really a lot considering that it is just a scam.
According to the website SimilarWeb, the majority of visitors are coming from Brazil – almost 10%.
Then about 10% are from Indonesia, 10% India, 4% Vietnam and 3.6% from South Africa.
In my opinion, it is necessary to create unbiased reviews like this to educate people not to trust these guys behind Paid Leaf.
And also it is important to show to people how a legit training course online looks like. Everyone who wants to make money online, either just as an income on the side or a full-time business, must understand that there is no way that a beginner can make $500 the 1st day he starts out.
If you are a newbie I suggest you first learn how to create a website. That is actually a very easy thing to do. With a proper guide/tutorial you can create a real website within few minutes.
It would be nice to have also support 24/7 in case there are some questions. And believe me, there are always questions when it comes to creating something new. But no worries.
You can actually test out one platform for free. You have full 7 days to go through the training and set up your new website. You will also learn what it takes to prepare this website for the SEO (so people will find your website, just like you have found this one you just reading 🙂 )
PaidLeaf Tools & Training
Fake promises, fake income; and the dashboard is pretty much the same as Clout Bucks.
Also, the way how you can “make” money is the same -> Just share your link on social media and you get credit.
You have also tasks where you can earn more money.
They really did their best to make this easy for everyone. They use this baits to get as many members as possible – just to steal data (like personal email, name, password)
The thing is that no one got paid ever.
I have checked many comments regarding the PL, and people are complaining that they could not cash out.
Concerning the red flags, also here is one thing that does not seem to be right.
Why do they still have this option for Google+?
Google+ has been shut down in April 2019. The creators of the PL didn’t know about that?
We know that this entire system is one big scam and there are just too many red flags to go through. In the next paragraph, we are going to have a look at the testimonials, just for a fun 🙂
I have done screenshots of the testimonials on the PL page and underneath them, I put screenshots of actors from a website called Fiverr:
At least 2 of them, I have already seen in other products as well (for example Spring Profits and 7-minutes daily profits), doing fake testimonials as well.
BTW, the Spring Profits is not available anymore. This was a ClickBank product and that means that the customer has 30 days money-back guarantee (ClickBank policy). The reason why Spring profits are not available anymore is due to the high refund rates. Customers were simply no to happy with that product.
That being said, whenever you spot these actors, the probability that it is a misleading product is very high.
As we have seen with a similar system called Clout Bucks, also Paid Leaf has a section for support. This time though, it is made as Q&A (unlike the Clout Bucks with a link to unavailable YouTube videos)
I won’t go through all the questions, but one of the questions goes:
How much do I need to cash out?
Answer: “We don’t have a minimum payment amount to cashout. However, you must meet some requirements before cash out for the first time to help prevent fraud”
Interestingly enough I was browsing through the platform and I wanted to find out what happens when I click on the cash-out – so I want my $25 credit, right:
So there is a minimum amount to cash out. Obviously the creator of the PL did a sloppy job having mismatch information inside the platform.
Right underneath the Help button, there is an option to get support via Skype.
The idea is great – having someone online who can help you.
Just out of a curiosity I did search the image and have a look at how many results there are:
It is just hard to comprehend, why they use some stock photo for Olivia.
Or, just another fake, just like with the testimonials, don’t you think?
PaidLeaf Price Structure
There is no fee to join this system as we have already covered.
The visitor of the PL is promised to get paid once he signs up. That sounds too good to be true. And it is.
No one gets paid. It is even impossible to keep such a business model where they pay out millions of dollars to their users.
These scammers are not after your money, at least not directly.
It appears that they just want your email address. And actually that is good business. They collect thousands upon thousands of email addresses and then they can sell these lists to a 3rd party.
What can happen, is that someone can offer you an email list for a “reasonable” price. I mean it is a big business to sell and buy an email list.
I used to wonder years ago, how come these people have so many email addresses… Now I know.
Don’t get me wrong – collecting an email address is a normal marketing strategy, but it must be done ethically. If a business or website owner is involved in email marketing, his duty is to maintain a relationship with the audience.
Collecting emails ethically requires time and a lot of effort.
My Final Opinion of PaidLeaf
I believe there is not much to say.
Maybe just: STAY AWAY FROM Paidleaf!!!
There is no owner or some person(s) who is behind the PL. The claims about earning are lies, and I have even checked their Facebook page…
To me, it is abandoned real estate.
There is not action since August 2019.
I did mention how the legit platform looks like, so if you want you can check my review go ahead.
And you can even test that platform on your own.
PaidLeaf at a Glance…
Name: Paid Leaf
Price: Advertised Price 0$ to join
This is the same kind of product as Clout Bucks. Same fake promises and same BS.
The PaidLeaf is outright scam.
Maybe the owners of this system are not after your money but they definitely collect emails and eventually sell them to the third party.
Please stay away from this product. Hopefully, you have not signed up to the PL.
If you did and you have used your regular email and password, make sure you change your password.
If you have any sort of question regarding this scam let me know.
Also if you would like to find out more about the educational platform I was mentioning at the beginning, leave me a comment and I will be more than happy to answer you back.
Stay away from scams
